Pets are part of the family. Pets are wellness companions, protectors, or best friends, sometimes all three. As a result, people are spending more money on their pets, and this is reflected in the growing pet industry. The increasing pet spending trends are not just limited to food and treats, but the overall theme of pet health and wellness.
In terms of pet supplementation, pet owners want the best life for their pets and that includes having them live as long as possible. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to teach us we need to be as healthy as possible.
And that applies to our pets, too. Regarding Sustainability, we, especially Millennials, recognize that we need to preserve our planet and our resources for future generations, but also a healthier life and a healthier planet. As a result, we need to implement sustainability practices into our lifestyle and support Companies that strive to create sustainable products and implement sustainable practices in their companies.
Pet parents should think about mobility and immune supplements. For example, MYOS Canine Muscle Formula® is an all-natural supplement powered by For-te-tropin®, a formulation that has been proven in multiple veterinary clinical studies to build muscle and reduce muscle loss due to aging or injury in dogs. In aging dogs, the supplement contributes to mobility; it helps prevent muscle loss and promotes increased daily movement and activity. Clinical research has shown MYOS Canine Muscle Formula helps reduce muscle atrophy after TPLO surgery, one of the most commonly used surgical procedures for repairing canine cruciate ligament (CCL) tears in dogs and improves the success rate of TPLO recovery. It’s available on MyosPet.com, Amazon.com, and chewy.com
Additionally, if ever anybody needed an immune system booster, it’s dogs! Think about it… dogs are close to the ground. That means they get more than their fair share of pesticides, chemicals, and toxins on their feet and bodies. King Kanine Green Immune is a combination to perfectly support systems for canine skin, coat care, joint, and antioxidative health. It is made with Green-lipped mussel, Phytoplankton, Microalgae (Spirulina) & Spinach. Separately these ingredients have many benefits but together they are a super power pack. Rich in Omegas, glucosamine, and chondroitin, Vitamins C and E, antioxidants, and minerals such as copper, zinc, and selenium for your pets, this green supplement is great for overall health and wellness. Add to food or make a smoothie with goat’s milk. www.kingkanine.com
Start slow. Think about the products that you use and then, search for Companies with sustainable products and practices. Visit their websites. For example, as dog owners look for smarter, sustainable ways to care for their beloved pets and protect the environment, companies like Wizsmart are doing the same. The Company uses top-quality, upcycled, and unused diapers from global manufacturers combined with a leakproof design to develop pet pads that brings ease, comfort, and cleanliness to pets and their owners. Most pee pads on the market can leave a wet mess behind but, WizSmart’s All Day Dry dog pads work up to 24hrs so that pet lovers can keep pets’ paws dry and avoid a dirty home with only one of WizSmart’s premium pads. Unlike most training pads, WizSmart’s pads quickly absorb liquids to trap and eliminate odor – so your pet can pee cleanly and discretely in the home. www.wizsmart.com
Another is to use healthier and sustainable shampoos to clean our dogs. Many shampoos are filled with chemicals and detergents that are not necessarily good for our dogs’ skin and coat or the planet. Alzoo’s Dry Concentrated conditioning shampoo reflects the company’s continual focus on doing better for the environment while creating an excellent delivery system. Formulated with environmentally friendly, safe ingredients such as botanical cleansers and essential oils, the new conditioning shampoos are Paraben-free, dye-free, sulfate-free, and pH Balanced for dogs. The package design eliminates the use of plastics, lessens water used in transport, and further reduces the carbon footprint while also reducing costs for pet parents. They even have their own reusable aluminum bottle to mix it in. This conditioning shampoo leaves your pet with a clean, shiny, silky coat that hydrates the skin and helps the planet.
Alzoo’s innovative shampoo line makes bath time more efficient, fun, safe, and sustainable. Four new grooming shampoos include: Hypoallergenic, 2-in-1, Anti-Itch, Puppy, all of which use plant-based cleansers and essential oils. Paraben-free, dye-free, sulfate-free, and pH Balanced for dogs. Each product is packaged in an easy-to-squeeze, innovative sugar cane-sourced tube. www.alzoo-vet.com
